I also own the 18-135 mm OSS lens, so I can make a similar test tomorrow for comparison between OSS and IBIS. Spoiler: I wasn't really happy with OSS on 18-135, as sometimes it makes soft photos at 1/125 s.

There is a Youtuber called Arthur R that found his A6500 was less stable with OSS + IBIS than with either option utilized alone.

Overall, these results don't surprise me.  The A6500/A6600 IBIS is widely reputed to be weaker than the FF cameras and other manufacturers (e.g. Panasonic, Fuji).  Another reason why I'm waiting on the A6700!
